Happy (Non-Orthodox) Easter!

I know it's Easter and they're playing baseball, but I wish it felt more like spring. Last night's low up here in the tundra was 26, and we still have some snow on the ground, in places where the plows had piled it high.

Girls of Sunset Strip


Coming your way will be clips from a strip-and-wiggle disk called Girls of Sunset Strip. Not your typical fare in that the girls in question include a bunch of B-movie regulars. They would be Kim Dawson, Mimi Fallace, Monique Parent, Nenna Quiroz (who often gets cinema nekkid as Lisa Throw) and Tanya Poole.  And there is this other gal named Crystal Nelson. 

The disk suffers from one huge fault - stupid camera tricks.  Post-production editing added all sorts of unnecessary and obscuring features to the nekkid gals, as if the producers were attempting to show they could put out a work of cinematic art.  Sheesh.  I edited out that shit, leaving the gals in all their glory.

DVD bonus features included three clips of other disks in which Julie Strain. Lorissa McComas and Shauna O'Brien get down to their birthday suits.  With Kim, Julie, Lorissa and Monique, you have to figure this disk includes actresses in a few hundred B movies. 

Today: Lorissa McComas









Dark Reel


Built around what was supposedly a real murder of an actress in 1958, this horror thriller set in modern times has a lot going for it, including well-known names like Edward Furlong and Lance Henriksen, and one of my favorite B-movie babes, Tiffany Shepis, playing ... what else, a Hollywood Scream Queen. It even released on Blu-ray, normally a sign that the movie is better than B-quality. Unfortunately, they snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory in this horrid attempt.

The movie begins in 1958 (and in black and white), as actress Scarlett May is murdered and dismembered during a screen test, and the crime is filmed in its entirety.

Jumping to the present, scream queen Cassie Blue (Tiffany Shepis) is in production of the movie Pirate Wench, and B-movie fanatic Adam Waltz (Edward Furlong) has won a one-line walk-on part in a contest. As the production continues, one then another actress from the cast is murdered and dismembered, and references to the 1958 murder are found at the crime scene. What is the connection?

Yeah, it sounds like typical B-movie horror, and it could have been fun, but a really dismal script, attempting to be campy and clever but winding up lame and dumb, killed any chance of this movie being even B grade. The first hour was so boring I almost quit it several times, and even when the action heated up to an easily deduced conclusion, it wasn't much. Good casts don't guarantee good movies, and this one really blows.

The Women of Crazy Girls Undercover (2008): Nikki Ziering, Rayma Alfred, and Simona Fusco. It is very rare for me to receive a screener and toss it out unwatched if the film contains some nudity. Memory fails me, but I think this may be the first one, which I shit-canned after I read these comments at IMDb.
